“We let motorcycles and cars talk to each other, creating a digital protective shield for riders,” he said.
Cohda Wireless Managing Director Paul Gray says vehicle safety technology has reached the limits of minimising harm during an accident.
“Now it is about avoiding the accidents before they even happen,” he says.
“If a motorcyclist is riding down the street, they will be alerted when a car turning on to the same road creates an opportunity for an accident. This can also happen when the car moving on to the road is not visible to the rider.
“The radar will also alert drivers who are changing lanes if someone is in their blind spot, which is quite an issue for motorcyclists.”
He says the technology will eventually be in every autonomous car as well.
